At E3, Microsoft announced that the new Xbox LIVE dashboard which delivers intuitive navigation, increased responsiveness and improved engagement with Xbox experiences - will be launching beginning this holiday.
Now, the company has announced an open call for all Xbox LIVE members to register to participate in a preview program to help testing the system.
"This is an important program as we continually strive to ensure the reliability of a service that reaches tens of millions globally. Once this program is kicked off, an update will be pushed to your console that will contain select dashboard features," revealed Hryb.
Note: A console in the program is expected to remain fully compatible with standard retail consoles not in the program. (e.g. party chat will function)
- New design for integrated Kinect and controller navigation
- New Beacons to play online with friends
- Deeper Facebook integration
- New Cloud Storage for Game Saves and Xbox LIVE Profile
This year, Microsoft is introducing a new model for registering consoles.
"The new model is a more automated process that should make it easier for you. We will not ask you to type in your console information upon initial registration; once you are approved to participate in the program, look for details on our portal about how to register your console," said Larry.
